THE BAKERS OF ALCUIN
holidays at the bakery
its finally summer and I was very much elated, because Summer means vacations and an entire two months filled with fun and relaxation. On the last day of school, the teachers allowed us to play and do anything we of our desire. We were not given any school work or assessments either. Instead we were given free ice-cream and snow cones. Our last day at school was unique and special like no other. The other schools in town, ended their last day common and boring. Even though, my school *Alcuin Primary* was bashed or rediculed for its ridiculous uniforms, the staff are rather nice, they support and love their students. It was always certain that the pupils would have fun during the school years.
As the day dreweth closer, we were very much excited to get home and plan our holiday on where and when, we will be going on trips. When my mother came to pick up my sister and I, We saw her in working clothes, with batter pasted all over her apron. I was expecting to see the enter family in the car, dressed in swim wear and was ready to surprise us on a afternoon at the beach just like my peer Jerry did. The car ride home was fairly quiet and boring. This was quiet unsual, but maybe it didn matter that much. Maybe the family would be taken out sometime later in the summer.
Me: ” Mommy, could we stop for fast food please? since today marks the last day of school? ”
My mother: ” I am sorry Lacey. Not today, the bakery seems to be very busy today and I got a lot of sales to catch up on ”
Me: ”But- ”
My mother: ” No buts. Your grandpa i at home, you two will be staying with him some days. I am sure grandpa will prepare something for you two when you get home ”
Me: ” Mommy, we don want to stay with Grandpa, to be honest he is quite boring ”
My mother: ”Look! I dont want to hear you ever say such a thing of your grandfather. Youll both stay with him and perphaps we could go out somewhere next month maybe ”
And that was exactly what I wanted to hear. At last it seemed like our summer was
t going to be so bad or as I thought.
After my mother dropped my sister and I off, we strolled lamely heading to the front door and knocked on the door in a slothful manner.
Grandpa: ”Hey, who do we have here? Ouuu its my favourite set of identical twins! ”
Grandpa: ” May I ask, how was you guys day? ”
My sister and I : ” Well we really enjoyed our selves at school today ”
Grandpa: ” Then why so blue? Now, who wants to play a game of golf in the back yard?
Lucy-Ann: ” Oh me! me! I do ”
Whilst I didn want to. Golf? I questioned myself. This is modern days, which child from this generation would want to play such an outdated game?
Me: ” Umm, I dont want to play grandpa ”
Grandpa: ”Okay then. How about we go watch a movie?
A movie? It better not be black and white. For some reason, crazy, disrespectful thoughts arose through my head. Has this new life gotten to my head? Do I not remember where I was coming from ? I tried to fight those thoughts as hard as I possibly could. I just wanted grandpa to feel appreciated for once this afternoon. Besides, it is not like one to turn down a game of golf against grandpa. I have realised, maybe I was just too upset about not going out or getting the fast food I wanted.
Me: ” Actually, Grandpa I want to play golf ”
My sister: ”Yeah, me too! The last time grandpa beat me to two on one points and this round, I am going to take it home! ”
Grandpa: ”Well we will see about that Lucy! ”
Grandpa: ”Ha! Ha! Ha! I will go first ”
Grandpa used the golf club and tried to hit the golf ball, but he near missed and the ball past the hole.
Me: ” Nice try Grandpa ! ”
Me: ” Its now time for the one and only: Lacey-Ann Maxwell, the best golfer in this family ”
Grandpa: ” Okay, The Queen of golf! Show us what you got! ”
the confidence, I all the Costco with a strong Focus and concentration on the go ball.I started to breathe heavily, while swinging the golf club back and forth. I swang it several times before I decided to hit the golf ball. and after ten seconds, I striked the golf ball as hard as I could imagine. I was aiming for the hole and just as I was about to jump and celebrate, the ball somehow magically flew right over the hole, it didn even fall into the hole. What kind of magic was this? Did physics or gravity fail me? I was shocked and embarrassed after all the hyping and showing off. Was the universe telling me that all that boasting was for nothing.
Grandpa and Lucy: ” Ha Ha Ha! and you call yourself the queen of golf? ”
Lucy-ann: ” Excuse out of my way! The all time master of golf is coming to steal the show! ”
Me: ” Ugh! Like you would ever score any points ”
I stood in bias, and rolled my eyes ,even though I knew that Lucy is quite a PRO when it comes on to golf. After all she learned from the greatest himself:Grandpa Maxwell. While I was leaning on a concrete slab, with my back turn to the golf field, all I could do is complain to my self about how great Lucy thinks she is. Suddenly, I heard a loud shout.
Grandpa: ”Lacey! Lucy scored a point ! Thats my grand baby! ”
Me: ” She did? ”
”whilst running towards them ”
Lucy-Ann: ” Yeah I did! ”
Me: ” I give up! Why cant I not score at least one point? ”
Lacey: ” Maybe its because you are a jerk ”
Grandpa: ” Hey, you girls should be nice to each other. lets end the game and go watch a movie ”
Me: ” Yeah, I think that would be better ”
the idea of watching movies with Grandpa wasn so grand.as I still thought that he would search for an outdated movie from the early 90s and to make us watch it. Surprisingly , it was a modern day movie with actual colorful pictures. the name of the movie was my beloved friend. It was basically about a woman who lost her fiance to a car accident. This woman wrote many letters of her lost love and gave them to her children before she sadly passed. She did that, because she wanted her children to read those letters and remember their parents love. the movie was titled my beloved friend all the ladys fiance was a very special person to her. He was more than just a fiance, but he was a best friend to her.
Arthur the movie add ended, grandpa was wiping tears from his eyes. Fountain of uncontrollable water flowed from his eyes. Grandpa told us that its the second time he had watched the movie and it meant a lot to him.
Grandpa: ” I specify in this movie, because it reminds me of the love I still have for your grandmother. Even though I played a reck and lost her to my naivety ”
Me: ” grandma is on Wahuj Island, she is alive and pretty much well ”
Grandpa: ”I know, I meant to say it a different way. I just can explain, but I can relate very much ”
Me: ” Oh I see ”
Grandpa: ” well, enough of the sobbing and the sad stories ”
Grandpa: ” who wants to play hide and seek? ”
oh boy! Oh boy! finally! I oven dying for ages. Since the day I arrived in this house oh, I have always thought of it as a good source of the game. There are so many places to hide. I assume with all my soul and mine that I would be unthinkable. Lucy would be able to find me. between all of the spots I have discovered, I had to choose only one. I chose really hard and smartly. then I remembered the secret place I founded weeks ago when I was voyaging in my bedroom. I found it quite Frank that a secret door was under my bed in my sisters and I bedroom.
Grandpa: ” Okay, the game will begin has soon has I start counting ”
Grandpa: ” One, Two, Three- ”
In order to carry out my plan successfully, I had to ensure that lucy was not following me and had gotten her own hiding place.This was so because, if Lucy had
t find a spot, she would suggest hiding with me. She would surely leave traces and hints behind for grandpa to find us. Lucy would even laugh and make heaps of uneccessary noices. Those were a complete no- no and for once, I needed to be the champion of something in my life.
I tip toed up the stairs until I reached my bedroom. I screeched the door opened and quicky ran in and closed the door. After, I pulled away my bed and the carpet underneath it. Next, I pulled the lever attached to the wooden under floor door and anchored my body through the square shaped hole. With all my strength, I pulled over my bed and carpet as best as i could over the secret exit and shut the little door closed. Luckily, I remembered to carry a flashlight with me has it was really dark inside. I turned the flashlight on and I shoved it in my mouth as I was using my hands to climb down the ladder. I was quiet afraid as the old wooden ladder was making a cracking sound. When I aborted the ladder, I was finally flat footed on the ground. It was much darker than expected and the flashlight became incompetitive. Walking through the basement was quiet annoying, I was often being caught in cobwebs. Many insects were also present, but after all , I didn care to make fear get ahead of me, as long as there were no cockroaches, I would be just alright. I walked through the sides of the basement, until I founded a place were I sit. It was meerly boring being in such a place and I grew tired of waiting for me to be seeked. I heard no sounds of Grandpa and Lucy nor did I get the sensation that Grandpa and Lucy had found me or was approaching me. Then, I started to worry. I was then alarmed by sounds. Sounds of something crawling and sounds of rats squeeking.
My anxiety kicked in and there I sat in the corner trembling. Maybe I needed to give up trying to win the game and go up back. Suddenly, I started to feel a weird crawling on my back, the crawling continued up my neck and so I spatted it, only to see in hopping onto my hand.
Agh! Agh! Get it off ! Somebody help me!
It was a cockroach.These were brownish, redish looking insects, I hated them the most, as they always have seemed to be aiming after my face when they are flying. I became even more alarmed when more started appearing everywhere in the basement with some of them even flying around. I ran as fast as I could towards the ladder. to my surprise do wooden ladder broke when I was trying to climb it. This left no other way or Escape for me.
I was backed up on the wall screaming out for dear life while thousands of cockroaches where approaching me. this must be the end of me. My life was flashing before my eyes when I suddenly heard Grandpas voice.
Have they found me? I thought.
Grandpa: ” Lacey! whats wrong? ”
I blinked twice, only to realize that I was not in the basement, It was not dark, there were no cockroaches and I was not playing hide and seek. It turns out that I fell asleep in the coach during the movie and I had a dream.
Me: ” Grandpa I just had the worst dream ever! ”
Grandpa: ” Oh I could tell, by the way you were tossing about in your sleep. Well since your awake, how about we play hide and seek? ”
Lacey-Ann: ” Yeah! that would be a great idea! ”
Me: ” No! that will not be a great idea! I will pass ”
Grandpa: ” Okay how about we all do a little cooking together? I could give you girls a cooking lesson ”
Me: ” Phew! That would be better ”
for a while there I thought my vision would become a reality.
That following night, I couldn sleep so I decided to pull away my bed to check for the secret door.
Lucy-Ann : ” Lacey, what are you doing? ”
Me: ” Nothing, I am just looking for a doll. I must have miss placed it ”
Lucy: ” Okay, well just dont be so loud ”
Me: ” I wont ”
Just has I pulled away the carpet, there was nothing. There was no door Neither was there a lever. Have I gone mad or am I just being delusional? but after all it was a dream wasn it?
